Our Courageous Seminarians: Happy to be called to the hell of Calvary in solidarity with Jesus. Beatitude!


So many! Might you pray in solidarity with them as they follow our Lord’s call even while all of hell is unleashed? Here, then, is the prayer:


In the midst of the present crisis we’re trying to do right by our Lord Jesus, building our own seminary to do this.

All our big donors for the seminary – who do their research – have said that things have changed because of the present crisis, saying that because of all the horrible news and the lackadaisical attitude to be found pretty much everywhere about faith and morals, from seminaries to priests to bishops all the way to Rome, they have changed their minds on their big donations.

Instead of donating what they promised, because, they said, we’re trying our best to do the right thing in every way, they are all going to double their donations. That means, from $500,000.00 to $1,000,000.00 for one donor, and so it went with the others.

Here in the diocese of Charlotte, we’re doubling down, entrenching with our Lord Jesus. More attendance at Mass. More Confessions. More Adoration. More vocations. And after that, more vocations again.

      That is so beautiful Sanfelipe007 and hopeful. A virtue we all need.
      Thanks for sharing Father – I hope to see one or all of my grandsons on that poster in about 10 years.

    God bless and keep them. Our dear Mother encourage them in the service of her Beloved Son and the shepherding of His flock.
